Default Help Me Put Together A New Keg System

I have been trying to analyze the best deal to get into kegging. Here is what I have come up with. From MoreBeer: 4 kegs for $99, they have gas and beverage line assemblies with quick diconnects and picnic taps so 4 gas line assemblies @ $14 per = $56 and 4 beverage line assemblies at $8 per = $32, clamps, extra hose, etc. $10. Couple of tees or manifold $10 to $40. From Beverage Factory 5lb co2 tank $62, double gauge reg $41, shipping 10 =$113. So I am into a 4 keg system for about $320 to $340. Refridgeration is covered.

Have I got everything. With morebeers free shipping and keg sale they seem to make sense. Any ideas where I may save a few bucks? I am not adverse to going used on co2 or reg but have not really found any deals. Thanks.

how long are the bev hose assemblies? You want at least 6 feet of 3/16" ID tubing per faucet.

Try pricing out everything at brewersdirect.com they sell kegs for around 20 buck apiece after shipping.

Cheers

I went to that website, but don't see any kegs for sale, do you have a link? That page is rough to navigate.

Roger that on those guys. I have 4 kegs, regulator, tank and all from those guys and those guys only. Read the fine print, you'll want them cleaned, checked and inspected. Cleaning and reassembling them is a PITA for the first time kegger. I know, been there, done that.

I don't know about brewers direct. I live out west and by the time I pay shipping I am just over $100 for 4. Their prices on other equipment isn't cheap enough to overcome the free shipping at morebeer.
